Enforcement Foreign Judgment

This service is available across Greece

Who would find this Service useful?

The enforcement of a foreign court judgment in Greece is a process determined by international conventions, European Union regulations, and Greek national law, ensuring the recognition and execution of judgments issued by courts outside of Greece. Our lawyers can assist:

  • Individuals or entities with a legally binding court decision issued abroad that they wish to enforce in Greece.
  • Those looking to secure the legal effects of foreign judgments, including financial claims, family law decisions, or commercial disputes, within Greek territory.
Who would find this Service useful?


  • The foreign judgment must be final and enforceable according to the law of the issuing country.
  • It must not contradict any existing Greek legal decisions or the public order and moral standards of Greece.
  • The judgment must have been issued by a court considered to have jurisdiction over the matter according to Greek law.

Process: Our Approach

  1. Initial Assessment: We evaluate the foreign judgment's compatibility with Greek law and international treaties and select the most appropriate process, which depends on whether the original judgment arose in a Member State of the European Union or not.
  2. Documentation Preparation: Gathering and translation of necessary documents, including the foreign judgment and legal certifications.
  3. Filing for Recognition: Submission of an application to the competent Greek court for the recognition of the foreign judgment.
  4. Enforcement Process: Once recognised, proceeding with the enforcement of the judgment in line with Greek procedural law.
